Hi I’m Reina Esperanza, Merchandise Coordinator at 3 Day Blinds. Working with fabrics and patterns every day is such a great experience. It’s so easy to appreciate the beauty and allurement that each fabric can bring. How can I pick only a few of my favorites? Well with some deliberation, here they are my favorite fabrics from the 3 Day Blinds line. I hope that you enjoy them just as much as I do!

 1.       From Sea to Shining Sea… Barrier Reef | Sea Breeze 

Color Trends and Bamboo Blinds

 It’s finally the summertime! The beach is the best place to be this time of year.  Smelling like sun block as you enjoy the sand, surf, breeze and simply taking pleasure in relaxing along the shore. The coastal design helps bring that feeling home. The pattern Barrier Reef | Sea Breeze is a beautiful fabric that is both fun with the reef pattern and sophisticated with the embroidery. By adding a Roller Shade in Calceta | Driftwood, you’ll have all the elements you need to complete that beach feel.

 2.       Never to Tarnish… Eminence | Silver

Greys and Neutrals from 3 Day Blinds

Souce: Buzznet, 3 Day Blinds

Don’t limit your silver to just jewelry and kitchenware! Being easy on the eyes, grays are the neutral of the season. Grays are everywhere and offer a bit of sophistication to soften the environment. Most shades of gray are absorbent colors that change with the light, so it’s easy to match with your current decor. With an intricate pattern, Eminence | Silver adds the visual interest you need to intrigue your guests with your elegant style.  In addition, metallic colors such as copper are playing an increasingly important role in modern design. Eminence | Russet embraces the copper tone with highlights of yellow and a subtle hint of clay. Aren’t these modern metals marvelous!

3.       To Expose or Not to Expose?… Ex Marks | Snow

Marsala Blog #1

Using Marsala in Your Home

Interior designers around the world were excited when color authority Pantone revealed its 2015 Color of the Year.  As its name would suggest, “Marsala” can be described as a rich, wine color. We should expect to see Marsala frequently on the runways and in home decor throughout the year.

You don’t need a complete design makeover to give your room a little pizzazz. Pantone’s Color of the Year works great with just about every color scheme. Start out simple with some centerpieces, rugs, or even  window treatments to refresh your interior space. Curtains are an easy way to add that pop of color, but don’t take our word for it. Check out these fabulous home decor designs for inspiration on how to use Marsala.

Marsala as an Accent 



These carefully chosen pillows add just the right amount of color and keep the room feeling light and open. Go a step further and add some tastefully placed window treatments to block out the mid day sun. If you are looking for a splash of color, Marsala’s earthy tone adds a nice contrast in any room.

Lamps, rugs, chairs, curtains, and even a table centerpiece can add that extra finishing touch to your space. Try out some fun accent centerpieces.

A bold accent wall or window treatments keep a room from looking stark and uninviting. Give your space a modern twist with a dark colored accent wall or drapes.




As a Contrast 

As a rich, bold color, Marsala certainly makes a statement when set in contrast to a white backdrop.  If you want a complete design makeover, here are some artistically designed spaces using Pantone’s Color of the Year.



As a Compliment

We think Marsala works as a nice compliment and brightens up the room. Consider a multicolored rug, or custom shades.

The possibilities are nearly endless because this shade is so versatile. Start out with some accent curtains, a valance or custom shades to add visual warmth to your home.

How will you use Marsala this year?
